ifplugd and netctl-auto, no ifplugd.action

Hi all!

I have a new laptop and set up Arch on it.
For my previous laptops I used for networking netctl-auto in combination with ifplugd.

This time I had no chance to get a wired connection.
After investigating some time, I found out that

systemctl status ifplugd@<interface>

showed the error

Program execution failed

So I found out, that it cannot execute

/etc/ifplugd/ifplugd.action <interface> up

because there is no ifplugd.action executable.
The only executable is


. I solved the problem for now by making a link with

ln -s /etc/ifplugd/netctl.action /etc/ifplugd/ifplugd.action

. Does anyone know why systemctl/ifplugd still searches for ifplugd.action instead of netctl.action?
Or should I have an ifplugd.action?


EDIT:  suggests that one has to write its own instance of the action script.
I never did that before and there was no need for that.
